When was the last time you enjoyed your airport experience? The answer for most of us, is a resounding... "never." Chandra Jacobs, CEO of Boston-based mobile app, tripchi, thinks it's time for a change. We spoke with Chandra on where she sees mobile headed, and thoughts on trailblazing this exciting trend!

What is your "elevator pitch"? What problem are you trying to solve? Airports – the word just conjures up so many negative emotions – lines, delays, unhealthy food, and overpriced merchandise. As frequent travelers ourselves, we understand these issues firsthand. We are a team of 4 people passionate about travel, technology, and solving real problems.
And there is no bigger problem that exists in travel today than the "airport experience," or rather, the lack of one. But it doesn't have to be this way. Airports should be a fun part of the travel journey, not a necessary evil - especially since people spend just as much time in airports as they do on the plane itself.
And that's why we created tripchi - to turn that airport frown upside down!
With tripchi, part of the excitement of the travel experience will be the time spent at the airport.
